Big News from Disneyland Paris: Main Street, U.S.A.’s Beloved Candy Store Prepares for Transformation

Disney has just announced that it will close its iconic Boardwalk Candy Palace on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Paris for an extensive renovation starting July 1, 2024. This beloved candy store, cherished for its ornate, vintage design and delightful assortment of sweets, is set to undergo substantial changes.

Renovations at Disney theme parks are routine, aimed at enhancing the magic and providing fresh experiences for visitors. However, some renovations have raised eyebrows among fans. Recent refurbishments, like those at Disney World’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground and Bay Lake Tower, have drawn criticism for sacrificing thematic elements in favor of more modern, industrial aesthetics. A similar fate befell the World of Disney store in Disney Springs, which lost some of its whimsical charm during its makeover.

The lack of a set reopening date for the Boardwalk Candy Palace has left Disneyland Paris enthusiasts anxious. Concerns are mounting on social media, with many fearing a “beigification” that could strip the store of its immersive, intricate design renowned among Main Street shops worldwide.

Enhancements aren’t just confined to the candy store. Steps away, closer to Sleeping Beauty Castle, Casey’s Corner is also getting a Victorian-inspired covered terrace, further changing the landscape of Main Street, U.S.A.
